What is Oculoplastic Surgery?

In its most basic sense, “Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery” or “Oculoplastic Surgery” may be defined as any surgery that changes the form of adnexal tissues associated with the eye (from the Greek: ophthalmos, meaning eye, and plastos, meaning formed. Thus, ophthalmic plastic surgery includes repair of eyelid malpositions, eyelid and orbital reconstruction, conjunctivoplasty, cosmetic blepharoplasty , lacrimal surgery, orbitotomy procedures, and the treatment of anophthlamic socket deformities.1 Plastic surgery in a more general sense is the surgical science, art, and craft of repair, reconstruction and shaping of hard and soft tissues throughout the body.
